Following a three-year hiatus — including 2020’s coronavirus-forced cancellation — the Halloween event will take place October 29th at Los Angeles’ Banc of California Stadium. Elfman — who penned the stop-motion film’s music, lyrics and score — will return to the production alongside to-be-announced original voices and special guest stars.
“Jack Is Back! I was so sorry to have missed last Halloween. (We all know why),” Elfman said in a statement. “BUT- I’m not skipping this year. Jack wants to get back on stage. I can’t wait to see you all.” For the performance, Elfman will sing in sync with the the film while a full orchestra and choir perform the film’s score and songs live.
The family-friendly concert — the first-ever film music event held at Banc of California Stadium — will also include pre-show activities like a costume contest and trick-or-treating. Tickets for the event go on sale Friday, May 14th at Ticketmaster.
